BCCI gives us more support than WICB: Bravo

Dashing all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has joined skipper Darren Sammy in criticising the West Indies Cricket Board, saying “even BCCI does more” for them compared to the WICB.

“The country’s cricket is not in right hands. We have not got a telephone call from any of the WICB officials or directors. That’s not a good thing,” Bravo told a TV channel in a post-final interview on Sunday night.

“We know that they did not want or believe that we could win this tournament. It was basically us against them. Even the BCCI does more for us,” he added.

He also questioned as to how players like him, Gayle and Russell are being kept out of the West Indies ODI side.

“If we look at the calendar, we don’t have anymore T20 matches this year. We are not picked for the ODIs. There’s a series that’s going to happen with South Africa but we will be playing in England (Natwest Blast) whereas we should have been playing for the West Indies.

“Look at the love we get over here. Even the BCCI does more for us than our board.

“But it’s nice that the CARICOM people are coming together. Cricket is a way that unites people in the Caribbean,” concluded Bravo.
